Abstract

Bitter Tea is a 23 minute short fiction film made by CaiCai Liu in April 2010. The film shows a Chinese photography student's life in the U.S. This paper discusses the issues of Asian identity, cultural changes and the philosophy of illusion symbolized by the perception of the photographer. It also represents the processes of making the film from pre-production, production, to post-production and explains the workflow and technical issues of how this project was made.
